Listings for Appfolio

Description

“Listings for Appfolio” is a light-weight property listing plugin that allows you to list your properties on your WordPress site from your Appfolio account using a shortcode.

The old iframe method of displaying appfolio listings does not allow site owners to customize the styling of the listings. This plugin will give you freedom to make any changes to the listings page.
All your appfolio listings will be shown in an interactive way which you can customize using CSS easily. Listings page have an optional google map as well. You will also get all the filters from your appfolio listings page.

Checkout the plugin’s demo here

Shortcode: [apfl_listings]
where you want to show the listings. A full-width page is recommended for better styling.

Notice: This plugin depends on “allow_url_fopen” to get the content from appfolio listings page. Please add “allow_url_fopen = 1” in your php.ini file or contact your hosting to enable it for you.

You will need to enter your appfolio account page URL in the plugin settings that looks like this – https://example.appfolio.com
Optionally, enter google map JS API key in the plugin settings to enable the google map showing your listings.

This plug-in is great! It allows me to get rid of AppFolio’s iFrame solution and add my rental listing directly on my website. The developer has been very responsive to support questions and development ideas. I recommend every property management firm that uses AppFolio (except my competitors haha) to add Listings for AppFolio to your website.
